and a questionable outcome. if it goes in favor of mitt romney, -- republican, but i am leaning toward obama. if mitt romney wins, the 47% are not going to be happy. i am a republican, but it seems like if you vote for mitt romney, you are voting for the future. i am disabled and have children. i kind of feel selfish of five votes for obama because it might help us now. if i thought for mitt romney it might help -- if i voted my, children down the road. host: the earlier caller talking about voters oppression. a couple of editorials we want to share with you. from mitt romney's hometown of in detroit. top reasons to re-elect barack obama is what the editorial says. with a myriad of conflicts that enter the middle east, not to mention the u.s. tense relations with china and russia, the president has to have a steady, learned hand on the tiller. mitt romney does not have that hand. obama's first term prove he can deliver at home under the worst imaginable circumstances, battling multiple crisis that individually would have saw lesser presidents. abroad, obama has restored american credibility and influ
. if romney with all the money he had and republicans had, outside money, if they had targeted the states early with advertising and then with field work, too, i think it would be a position now where minnesota could be in play or oregon. we see polls with the races in mid single digits in the states and minnesota right now and finally talking about it a little bit. romney doesn't have a single field office there. they didn't make the effort and stuck trying to win ohio. i don't think they can. >> just to be clear, giving alaska to romney? >> that's in -- leaning. >> bold. >> to your point, we did the maps separately and didn't know what we were going to do until we decided but the play's only about eight or nine states. right? obviously the others we agree on -- >> none of us have the same maps. >> that's right. >> steve and i are very, very close. steve has virginia going blue and not so confident and putting colorado blue today but i might change tomorrow. that's razor close and not the difference for obama. i'm giving you see ohio blue, new hampshire blue, iowa and nevada and wisconsi
is one of i'd say two or three of the most effective republican surrogates the romney campaign had been using. somebody they had put out on their own. not quite the level of bill clinton for obama but not bad. you know. marco rubio and chris christie sort of are the two sort of stars that can get people on their own. and here he is with obama. i tell you, you see him -- here's another sort of fascinating thing to watch. the number of photographs that people asked to take with the two of them, and they kept taking them. what are they going to say? you have these people at the shelter or their homes and they're both emotional, upset, and excited to meet the president and the governor. and here they were posing for pictures together. the two of them. with constituents in new jersey too. that part of it was a little surreal, especially when i sort of remind myself that today's wednesday and election day is, i don't know, not even 200 hours away. >> an extraordinary day. chuck todd, thank you very much for joining us tonight. >> you got it. >>> across the river from new york city, hoboken, n
campaign on pause, but today, it was back to business on the trail. republican mitt romney argued that he would do a better job leading the country's economy. at his first step in wisconsin, president obama appealed for another term in office to finish the job he started. a short time ago, he was given the backing of new york's mayor michael bloomberg, who endorsed the president's citing specifically the issue of climate change. i ask the political reporter for the "washington post" what he would be watching out for. we're entering the portion of the campaign where i start to the people who run for president just have a different team than the rest of us -- different gene than the rest of us. >> there is no doubt about that, but this is an incredibly close election at this point. a lot of people predicted this a year ago, that it would be close, and they've got the election they anticipated. a handful of states will decide if the candid -- will decide it. candidates will be in and out of the state's multiple times. >> what can they actually do at this stage? barack obama, mitt romney, to
the president to 263. mitt romney, and the republicans believe, florida and virginia, the two southern states putting them in pretty good shape, getting them to 248. that brings us to the two most hotly contested, colorado and ohio, but look at this, if i move ohio over to romney, he is still short of the 270 magic number, could mean that colorado, a state we told you yesterday in the polling had it 48-48, means it could be the state keeping us up all night. but speaking of keeping us up all night, here, i give the midwestern states all to romney. wisconsin, iowa, ohio and florida, but go ahead and give virginia to the president. let me show you where this takes us. 269 for romney. 269 for the president. here, and i have no more electoral votes to push. this would mean we would have the constitution work, and this would also mean, brian, that the most likely outcome in this is the house would elect romney president, and the senate would elect biden vp. there are a lot of possible scenarios, this one, not so implausible. >> chuck, step away from the math, we have days to go, many different sce
roosevelt. mitt romney says he will do a better job if he is elected. the republican nominee is spending the last few days of the campaign making that case in the battleground states. romney is in wisconsin and ohio today trying to pick up the few remaining undecided voters. >> and we asked them and you to look beyond the speeches and the attacks and the ads, look to the record. >> reporter: the race is tied in nine swing states. the latest polls also show the race tightening in pennsylvania, a state once thought to be easily in the president's win column. the romney campaign is making a late push to take pennsylvania. the republicans are spending three million dollars on campaign ads there and romney will visit the state on sunday. now, let's look at the markets right now. you can see that the dow is down just by 100 points. stock gave up that early gain despite a decent jobs report. that job is being attributed to traders assessing the potential costs of superstorm sandy. back to the campaign, president obama's camp is calling the gop's effort in pennsylvania an act of desperation. but
's the media ignoring planet change. how about the republicans? well, of course they think it's a joke. listen to what romney said during his convention acceptance speech. >> president obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans. [ laughing ] and to heal the planet. my promise is to help you and your family. [ cheering ] >> cenk: unless of course your family is in the middle of hurricane sandy good luck to you. i'm not going to help you at all. they literally think the climate change is a punch line. the planet, it's getting warmer. isn't that funny as your family is in great danger over it. ha ha, ha, ha, yeah, really funny. really appreciate it. who are the people who are putting any of this into doubt in the first place? of course, the republicans. listen to this crap that they pedal out of "daily basis"." >> how do you explain the heat? summer. we have hot weather, get over it. >> that global warming thing is really kicking into high gear, isn't it. >> the issue of global warming has been fortified through substantial number of scientist who is have manipulated data. >> the last

campaign gamut backfired. >> but mitt romney is still kpetive in ohio. >> this is a mainstream republican state. there is a reason no republicans won the white house not winning ohio. there is a deep republican tradition in this state. the fact that it's an obama fire wall is what is remarkable. this is a state that mitt romney could do well. he should do well. running the obama's campaign core strategy appealing to middle class voters, working class whites in this state makes a big difference when it comes to ground game and that critical early voting. mitt romney has had a real problem connecting to those folks. >> who is he leading with in ohio? >> president obama is leading with women. he's leading with centrist business 0 points. losing independents by two points. losing white men by a considerable margin. leading with folks who make undered 50 e$50,000 a year. so the national themes are evident here in ohio. >> when you say independents and centrists, you're describing them as two separate things. a lot of viewers think independents means centrists. >> in the past, they have. one of
. governor romney knows that only too well that no republican has won the white house without winning ohio and the race right now in ohio is close to a dead heat. let's look at the two latest polls. first, our own cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows president obama with a three point lead. now that is inside the statistical margin of error. so that's about as close as it can get. and nbc "wall street journal" poll gives the president a six point lead in ohio. a little better for obama. still very close. now obama may be the top prize for the candidates right now l are other important battleground states. we'll take through over the course of the next hour in a way that only cnn can. john avalon and i traveled more than 1800 miles on cnn's battleground bus tour as the race for the white house reaches its conclusion. no mat wrer i ter where i go, t economy is the most important issue in this election. i've been traveling with john avalon. he joins me now as does my good friend christine romans. she joins me from washington. jim acosta from did he back to you, iowa, where mitt romney just lan
and change. how can both republicans or people who are voting for mitt romney if they're independents say that things have changed too much. they "want their country back." but they still didn't get change. how can you have the argument both ways? >> that's easy, victor, that's easy. republicans never wanted president obama's hope and change. democrats and independents did. >> let's talk about those independents. >> those are the ones right now who are the ones you're talking about. those are the ones most disappointed. >> let's talk about something that happened on your show. a caller called into your show and gave you a bit of a warning, right? >> he gave republicans a warning. the same thing i have been doing. if mitt romney wins this time around, i'm an embarrassed if republicans screw it up this time around, i don't know if we'll vote for them again. >> i'm going to give the republican party this warning, that i'm with you by default. but if you don't do something in the next four years, it's just going to flip right back to democrat. >> and, specifically, that warning is for what el

. >> final word, mr. la camp. >> well, i agree. if the republicans win, if mitt romney wins, there's going to be some optimism, enthusiasm, maybe a quicker fix to the fiscal cliff, and we have a rally that could last through january. but then we've got longer term problems that he can't fix overnight, and then the market is going to run into some new headwinds. >> thank you to the two jims. >>> coming up, this storm could have a huge impact on the presidential election. you might be surprised at which candidate this storm is hurting more. please stay with us. when you take a closer look... ...at the best schools in the world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> the massive recovery efforts are under way, but one lingering impact from sandy could be on politicians. eamonn is in washington with the latest. >> it wa
keep hearing people say that, that mitt romney and republicans, if the effort, if the recovery is going well, would say -- to say that michelle obama's not heaping praise on governor romney's time, his leadership in massachusetts, isn't that apples and oranges? those aren't the same thing. >> it actually is showing, though, the impact of all the praise that chris christie is heaping upon barack obama and him getting a political benefit from that. >> okay. >> more than just -- actually, probably the better comparison, tamron, is 9/11 after the 9/11 terrorist attacks where democrats and republicans rallied together around george w. bush who had been in the presidency just less than a year after winning a very hotly contested and contentious election. and the country coming together. and we're seeing that to a lesser extent right now play out on the east coast of new jersey and new york. >> thank you so much. i greatly appreciate -- go ahead, i'm sorry, keith, we're almost out of time, i'm sorry. >> i think it also shows the collapse of mitt romney's support mechanism in some ways. not tha
been a great cheerleader for mr. romney. do you think people in the republican party are going to wonder exactly what he's doing, by the way he keeps praising the president? today he was saying, the president is here, it's important he's here, we're thankful that the president is here, we appreciate his support. how is that going down do you think, with republicans who are fighting this presidential campaign? >> the republicans who are fi t fighting the presidential campaigns, the hard and fast warriors there, can't possibly be thrilled or happy with what chris christie is doing. first he goes to the come nating convention, gives the keynote speech and mentions himself or the word "i" more than the way he does mitt romney's own name. but also, he wants to leave presidential politics out of this, but politics is all part of this. and what you have here is the governor of a devastated state who is up for re-election next november, november 2013. he is a republican governor of a blue state. a state that more likely than not will vote for president obama. these pictures that we're
. republican presidential candidate mitt romney has broadened his attack on a barack obama's auto industry restructuring, implying a general motors used aid to hire more workers in china than the united states. it goes on to say that gm quickly defended its performance and said that romney is wrong on this. and here is the wall street journal on that story. even as mr. romney and mr. obama canceled a political appearances tuesday, the two campaigns -- escalated a heated exchange over mitt romney suggestion that the president also bailout had benefited china. he returned to pennsylvania in hopes of returning the momentum. the story wall street journal goes on to talk about that many have come out including those in the auto industry to say that the governor was wrong on this ad, that he is running in the state of ohio. we will talk about that more in about 10 minutes when reid wilson of the hot line joins us to talk about october surprises and all things campaign 2012. democratic caller, go ahead. caller: i think one of the things people are not realizing , and people who think the global w
that are divergent in some of these polls. we look at the numbers. the republicans and. romney team expects to be behind an early vote and believe they can carry ohio on election day. >> the get out the vote effort, part of the ground game we spent time talking about historically. president obama also had an advantage in that category. he's got more field offices here in florida than governor romney, more field offices in ohio than the governor does. i continue to hear folks say that mitt romney, that his ground game is so much better than it was four years ago. how are we measuring that? >> first thing we've got to remember, and i make this screw-up, too, this is a different candidate than four years ago. this is not john mccain, this is mitt romney. when it comes to on the ground activities, that's the first fact to remember. if you look at poll after poll, republicans and conservatives are excited about their nominee, especially after his performance at the debates. that's the first step. second step is that some of the best veterans in our party at the rnc with rick wily, at the romney
%, and mitt romney does not break 23%. and you have republican pollsters saying that if mitt romney doesn't get at least 38%, something that his own campaign is saying, of the latino vote, there's no way that he can win. in 2010, people had harry reid on par with sharon engel going into election day and he ended up beating her by five to seven points, and why was that? because all of the pollsters were missing the latino support that harry reid had. and i think that that is absolutely going to be the case, especially in these southwestern states. i think you need to add at least four percentage points nationally, and in these states to president obama's numbers. i think it's going to be part of his firewall along with the women's vote. >> so amy, what should romney be focusing on? should he even reap out to latinos at this point with so little time? >> of course, he should be reaching out to all voters, and that's where he's foe cushion his message. i think it's interesting that you see that the president's campaign message is entirely negative. it's attacking his challenger. whereas mitt
to answer. clearly after the first debate, the republican party at everly and these as to support tir. romney did do well compared to obama. there was disappointment with obama among democrats after the first debate. i think he has started to regain some of that because it is performances, but the first debate at a tremendous impact on the race. >> wherever obama goes, you hear him say, come out and vote, you have to. >> he relies on groups that have low turnout rates paid blacks, hispanics, pple nee and that catapulted him to the top in 2008. remember, there was a big turnout in 2008. those people lack the passion today and he needs to get them out. >> the pew research center and a harvard university poll indicates, it if they are accurate, that fewer young people are going to turn at this time than last time. >> i don't think you really need a survey to tell you that treat your own eyes, your own experience can tell you that. i don't know anybody who says that young people are going to vote me this yr. >> one thing obama has is this data mining think, this state of the arctic about
than to have president romney and tea party republicans in congress pulling him to the extreme right for the next eight years. christie for his part shrugged off the notion of political calculus in an interview last flight. >> the president does things that deserve praise, i will give him praise. and when the president does things that deserves scorn i'll give him scorn. when someone asks me an honest question i give an honest answer. how has the president been to deal with? he's been outstanding to deal with on this and i look forward to see him tomorrow. >> mitt romney is back on the trail in florida after turning a previously scheduled campaign event in ohio into a makeshift humanitarian relief event. >> we've got people right now that are having some hard times because of this terrible hurricane and the storm that followed it. and your generosity will make a difference. one of the things i've learned in life is you make the difference you can. >> buzz feed that lie plus rag reports the last minute switch away from romney's, quote, show leadership and get on the local news without
for more of our updates. president obama and republican challenger mitt romney hav cancelled their campaign appearances. obama returned to the white house after calling off a campaign stop in the u.s. state of florida just three hours before it was to start. earlier he san selled events in virginia and ohio. obama said he's not worried that the hurricane will affect the election next tuesday. former president bill clinton was in orlando, florida to rally support. clinton said obama is the best choice for president. romney cancelled vents in on monday. he issued a statement calling on people to come together across the country and focus on giving support to those who need it. the two states are not in sandy's path but observers say romney did not want to appear to be koe kusing on the campaign in the midst of a potential national disaster. >>> u.n. and arab league envoy says the truce he brokered in syria for a holiday period has collapsed. syria's government and opposition forces agreed to stop all attacks which started last friday. the fighting has continued leaving many people dead. the h
to republicans they say absolutely we're going antoine it. there's a lot more enthusiasm for mitt romney than there's been before. who am i to believe? >> nobody. i think the one thing that is true about ohio is that it's atypical in the sense that the president is doing badly amongst white men and white working-class men in particular around the country. although romney has been eroding the slight advantage here in ohio with white working class men, what helps the president here is that bailout of the auto industry because that is helping him with his key demographics. so if it really in the end is about ohio and the 18 votes here, then it may be that something has distorted the race here and helped the president. but nobody yet really even dares to call it. the one thing that both sides are saying very clearly is that early voting is very important. a quarter of the state has already voted and half may have vote bid polling day itself. traditionally early voting is the democrats, but this time rms have been working very hard on -- republicans have been working very hard on it, too. >> laura

plans on surfing again as soon as he's healed. president obama and republican candidate mitt romney got their campaigns back in full swing today. they'll hit several key states as they try and shore up support with the election just five days away. president obama is in green bay wisconsin at this hour. he's on a 24-hour whirlwind tour. criss-crossing the country to campaign in the swing states of wisconsin, nevada, colorado and ohio. republican mitt romney is making three campaign stops in the swing state of virginia today. he told supporters the country's economic troubles will not improve under another term with president obama. congressman jesse jackson junior will not be released from the mayo clinic before election day. jackson has already voted by absentee ballot and has no plans for a public appearance on election night. jackson was recently re-admitted to the clinic for treatment of bi-polar disorder. he also suffers from gastro- intestinal problems. he has not campaigned since taking a medical leave of absence in june. next we go live to the new york stock exchange. how some f
